Not for profit water and sewerage rebate

Supporting our not for profit customers with water and sewerage rebates.


What is the rebate scheme?

The State Government funds a rebate of up to $260 a year to eligible community service organisations on the fixed service charge component of their water bill issued by their water authority.

A rebate will be allowed to eligible organisations for individual properties, provided the predominant activity at the property falls within one of these categories. This will apply whether the organisation owns the property or not. Rebates may also be available to individuals provided that they are the owners of the property used predominantly by an eligible organisation.


Applying for the rebate

To apply for the rebate, visit State Revenue Office Victoria website, complete the application form provided, and mail or it to:

Greater Western Water
Locked Bag 350, Sunshine VIC 3020.

Once your organisation has been certified as eligible, the appropriate rebate will be allowed each year. It is not necessary to re-apply.

The organisation receiving the rebate is responsible for notifying us if the predominant activity on the property changes. Periodic checks are made to ensure the continuing eligibility of the organisation.
